When people are doing things high off the ground, there’s always a chance they will fall.

If that happens to your employees or customers, the quality of your ropes and harnesses could mean the difference between life and death.


That’s why personal protective equipment (PPE) inspections are vital for any business where working at height is involved.

And it’s vital to make sure inspections are adhered to and records are easy to find in the event of an incident, which you can do with Papertrail.
